  1. A little update from my end folks: LBC "deadline" passed. been quite a few weeks since i posted out my response. Also posted another letter asking them to refund the charges paid for mrs. I'll take that up with John Lewis now. I'm sure they will try and sting another time but we'll see. I'll keep you guys posted. Lovely work! a well deserving donation on the way
  2. Top advice guys @dx100uk and @FTMDave. just checked Chargeback and Section 75 info on Which and called up John lewis. Not eligible for both because Chargeback is for any transcations in last 120 days which I missed by few weeks and Section 75 applies to all transactions above £100 and below £30k. But i can raise a dispute on transaction which I would be doing today. Thanks again guys.
  3. @FTMDaveI paid using my CC. Charge back how? it was in summer last year? would that still be possible?
  4. @ericsbrother its just unbelievable that these crooks are making millions from the misery of others. At EMA, they have either 2 or 3 spycars and always driving around to catch their prey. My wife got stung by one of these when she picked up her sister on the BP at the same airport. We tried to reason by appealing but that didnt work and ended up paying. Wish I knew then what I know now.
  5. Thanks guys for your inavaluable input. @lookinforinfo trying my best ~Thanks @FTMDave i actually meant it. clearly he likes to complicate things for people I have now modified it as suggested. please check. @dx100ukI most certianly will be referring to that if it comes to it Dear Simple-Simon, VCS invoice no: VCS****** I have been in receipt of your threatening letters during the course of last couple of months. I am amazed at the extraordinary demands you have been making while having no legal grounds. Why would I part ways with my hard earned cash and hand it over to a company that has no locus standi here and has fallen into the same trap as OPS v W at Lewes CC 24th April 2020, particularly paras 52-65. Your prohibitive signs are just that and do not offer of a contract. Even if they were a legitimate offer of a contract, they completely ignore the 5-10 minute grace period usually afforded in such cases anyway. I believe VCS is already in breach of GDPR as it had no legitimate reason to ask for my details. If you want to take me to Court, you’re more than welcome as I will be seeking a full costs recovery through a recovery order. No liability or debt is owed to VCS so please refrain from sending any future letters demanding money. Finally I'll refer you to the Arkell v Pressdram.
  6. @LookingForInfoI can understand that you mean well (cheers for that and I appreciate it) but really its the kind of upbringing I had where being mean to mean people is highly discouraged as it leaves one struggling to distinguish between good and bad. I have slightly modified the letter as recommended by honeybee13. Please let me know your thoughts guys. T hank you Dear Simple-Simon, VCS invoice no: VCS4***** You clearly are not as simple as you sound. Why would I part ways with my hard earned cash and hand it over to a to a company that has no locus standi here and has fallen into the same trap as OPS v W at Lewes CC 24th April 2020, particularly paras 52-65. Your prohibitive signs are just that and no offer of a contract.

Finally I'll refer you to the Arkell v Pressdram case and the letter from Private Eye magazine, act on that!
  7. For PCN's received through the post [ ANPR camera capture] please answer the following questions. 1 Date of the infringement 24-Feb-20 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 02-Mar-20 3 Date received 12-Mar-20 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?] No 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes. already uploaded alongside my 2nd post. 6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal] Yes. It was done online on myparkingcharge.co.uk but unable to find now as it says this ticket is not valid. I had asked the PCN to be cancelled on the basis that plot where I parked the car at 05:05 in the morning was away from the main road and away from double red lines. Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up Yes. " We refer to your appeal in respect of the above Charge Notice (CN) received on 23/03/2020. 26/03/2020 Having considered the points you have raised and reviewed our records, we are unable to accept your appeal. Our main reason(s) for this decision are as follows: The signs at the entrance to the East Midlands International Airport and the access roads within, clearly state "No Stopping", giving clear notice that the land is private property and that a Charge of £100 will be levied if vehicles do stop. The above detailed vehicle stopped in a zone where stopping is prohibited and the driver became liable to pay that Charge. In your appeal you have confirmed to us that on the date in question, you stopped your vehicle on the access road, which is an area where stopping is not permitted. A review of our CCTV evidence has confirmed that on the date in question, your vehicle stopped to drop off a passenger on the access road where restrictions apply. There are over 240 high profile signs advising drivers not to stop and warning that if a driver does stop, a charge of £100 is payable. The signs exceed recognised industry standards, with some as large as 2m by 1.1m (6ft 6in by 3ft 7in) which clearly state "No Stopping" alongside the nationally recognised Highway Code symbol for a Clearway (No Stopping). Furthermore, the signage on the approach road is reflective and positioned to face oncoming vehicles and the text size used is relative to the average approach speed of a vehicle in relation to the speed limit in force at that location. We have fully reviewed this case and we are satisfied that the Charge Notice was correctly issued. We are unable to accept the mitigating circumstances raised in your representations, your appeal is therefore rejected and the Charge will stand; photographic evidence which supports this can be viewed at www.myparkingcharge.co.uk.. 7 Who is the parking company? VCS 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] East Midlands Airport, castle Donington, DE74 2TQ For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. IAS If you have received any other correspondence, please mention it here Received 02 more comms titled "Demand for Payment" and "Final Demand" before the LBC. in demand for payment letter they have made a reference to "ParkingEye Limited v Beavis (2015} UKSC 67 in which the Supreme Court held that parking charges serve a legitimate commercial interest and are neither extravagant nor unconscionable."

  8. Thanks FTMDave. I have now been through a few threads as recommended and have copied a letter from northmonk. Can you please check if its ok? Also I have question regarding why we address VCS as "simple simon"? Dear Simple-Simon, VCS speculative invoice no: VCS******* After reading your LBA I can see why you are referred to as "simple"! Do you really think that I would pay money to a company that has no locus standi here and has fallen into the same trap as OPS v W at Lewes CC 24th April 2020, particularly paras 52-65. Your prohibitive signs are just that and no offer of a contract. Even if they were a legitimate offer of a contract, they completely ignore the 5-10 minute grace period usually afforded in such cases anyway. You knew you had no legitimate reason to ask for my details so you are already in breach of GDPR. If you want to take me to Court, you’re more than welcome as I will be seeking a full costs recovery through a recovery order. No liability or debt is owed to VCS so please refrain from sending any future letters demanding money. Finally I'll refer you to the Arkell v Pressdram case and the letter from Private Eye magazine, act on that!
  9. Hello people, My case is almost similar to others here who have been stung by VCS and I am hoping to get help regarding the current situation I am in. In the middle of Februrary this year I happened to drop off my mother-in-law at three in the morning at East Midlands Airport. I am aware of no stoppage signs around that area because I also happen to work in the same industrial estate which is also owned by East midlands airport but a little further from the airport. the organisation I work for has an office in the same industrial estate and they have their own parking but obviously at 3 o'clock in the morning it wasn't very convenient to park next to the office and then walk about 2 km to the airport. I had made sure that I did not park on the double red lines as marked on almost all the roads in that area. I've pulled up away from the road and away from the double lines into a small piece of land which had no restrictions on it. I had seen the spy car while parking up but I assumed that it would be safe because I am away from the road and I'm away from the double right lines into another plot but clearly that wasn't the case as per VCS. i received a PCN asking me to pay hundred pounds which I appealed I replied to them that I was not parked on the road or on the double lines but it was rejected by VCS . They started sending me letters of claim ,the last letter now I received says letter before claim I think they are hoping to take me to the County Court to claim £160 as well as the court fees which is £25 if I do not respond to them by 21st of June. I've also attached a letter with information redacted. I'm hoping to get some advice on what should I do next because I do not really want to pay them £160 for something which I believe is a rip off practice by VCS and others like it. I had taken plenty of pictures when I pulled up that morning which show the car is parked away from the road and away from the double red lines which I had sent to BCS but they did not entertain.
